Nick Sirianni: We’re furious that we’re 1-3

The Eagles had three touchdowns called back due to penalty in their Week Four loss to the Chiefs.

That it happened to Philadelphia is not much of a surprise this year. Head coach Nick Sirianni’s team has drawn the most flags in 2021, and it’s not even close. The Eagles have been penalized 44 times in four games. The Buccaneers are No. 2 at 34 penalties.

“We’re upset — we’re furious that we’re 1-3,” Sirianni said after Sunday’s game, via Josh Tolentino of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “The self-inflicted wounds have to stop. We keep putting ourselves in holes with penalties. We have to use this tape and get better from it.”

The touchdowns got called back due to an ineligible receiver downfield, offensive pass interference, and illegal touching fouls.

At this point, the Eagles just aren’t good enough to overcome all of those setbacks.

“My message is really never going to change, win or lose,” Sirianni said. “We’ve got to make our corrections and get better from it.”

Quarterback Jalen Hurts said he and his teammates control the penalties and the little things, which is how they can get corrected.

“We’re clearly not there as a football team,” Hurts said. “We’re not a finished product. No player on this team is a finished product. We’ve got to put it together.”

  1. It would be easy in this situation to play the victim card. Props to Nick Sirianni for admitting the Eagles’ wounds are mostly “self-inflicted,” and demanding his team learn and get better for it.
    That’s not to say the Eagles haven’t been hosed more than once, but just about any team can make that claim at one time or another. When a team is continually and heavily penalized game after game there are usually reasons behind it that have little to do with officiating.

  2. 25% more penalties than the next closest team.
    set record for least amount of running plays by RBs in a game in NFL history against the Cowboys.
    worst play calling i’ve seen this side of Rich Kotite on both sides of the ball as an Eagles coach against the Cowboys.
    Gave up 40+ points in consecutive games.
    Chiefs scored 6 TDs in 7 drives.

    It took Jeff Fisher more than decade to start setting records as a mediocre coach. The Eagles coaching staff only needed a quarter of a season.

    Sirianni and Gannon can’t change what happened the 1st 4 games, their names are already in the record books of shame, but hopefully they recognize how unprepared they were for the jobs they were given and learn from their mistakes.

  3. Coach we the fans are furious that you are the coach, and that the front office is who it is.

  4. The Eagles have three 1st round picks from 1-3 teams, their own included, and all the picks are in top 10, the way things currently stand. They may not be very motivated to mess it up.

  5. Their biggest problem isn’t penalties. Their biggest problem is believing Jalen Hurts can be a legitimate NFL starter.

  6. You could bench a repeater and dock their pay for the missed time. That may set an example to start using your head.

  7. Wow a team upset they are 1-3. Never would have seen that coming………………….

  8. I was actually impressed with Hurts. I don’t think he’ll ever be an elite top 5 or even top 10 caliber QB but I do think he is good enough to win with if you build a complete team around him. I think Hurts can be a top 10-13 QB somewhere in that window. You’ve already drafted him might as well build around him as opposed to constantly looking for “the guy”. Give Hurts a top 5 defense, a good OL and some play makers and I think he’s good enough to get u where you need to go. He’s a strong leader who guys wanna play for, he can grow into the position.

  9. They went 4-11-1 last season and hired a new head coach who didn’t even get interviews anywhere else. 1-3 is right on track.
